Mister T “U.F.O. Mystery” (part 2 of 4)
Back in Rapid City, Mr. T and the gang discover that Woody never made it back to his improbably large hotel room. They find Woody’s address book, conveniently open at Professor Andrews’ page. They decide to drive out to the Menlo Park of the Black Hills, to see if perhaps Woody spent the night there. Once on the scene, they check the barn out just like Woody did.
Inside the barn, Kim notices the circular burn mark on the floor. Mr. T thinks that “somebody had a big weenie roast”. But it probably involved tentacles, given the Hentai Love Monster machine shown earlier. Kim, however, thinks that the burn mark looks just like U.F.O. landing circles she’s read about.
As she’s talking, Spike stiffly turns around and begins to walk out of the shot, exiting stage left. Before he gets to the edge of the frame, though, he starts to manifest his mutant powers. Three or four feet before he’s out of the shot, BAMF! He’s gone! There’s no puff of smoke or smell of brimstone, but the kid definitely just blinks out of existence.
Sure, I know this series was apparently edited and animated by palsied monkeys, but Spike BAMFs more than once in this episode. Makes you think about what might have been: Mr. T plus the X-Men! Oooh—or maybe Chuck Norris plus the Transformers! Just imagine!
As the saying goes, “A man’s dreams are an index to his greatness.”
While Spike teleports through alternate dimensions, Robin and Jeff chide Kim for suggesting that the burn on the floor could be related to a U.F.O. Only then do the numbskulls look up and notice the giant hole in the roof of the barn. Jeff seems convinced; He says that he sees “little green men” in his future. Spike, now back in our reality, pokes his head out of a side room and calls the team over.
